Get Out & Vote! May 2 Issues in the CLE

School, city and police funding issues are on the ballot May 2 in eleven Cuyahoga County locations – is your city one of them?  

Voters will decide on bond issues and tax levies for infrastructure, technology upgrades and other improvements at area school districts. These include Brecksville/Broadview Heights, Brooklyn, Chagrin Falls, Maple Heights, North Royalton, Parma, Rocky River and Shaker Heights.

In Bedford, the ballot proposes a municipal income tax increase to go toward increased police personnel, infrastructure improvements and general city operations.

Both Brecksville and Brooklyn are asking voters to decide on zoning amendments.

Two charter amendments are on the ballot in Seven Hills. The first would appoint the mayor to a full-time, elected position with a salary. The second amendment asks if the mayor may annually appoint a Financial Advisory Board.

The final election in Walton Hills concerns a tax levy to benefit the police force. The funding would go toward police communications, vehicles, infrastructure, salaries and other equipment.

To find out more about the ballot proposals and where to vote, visit the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections online.

Pro and con arguments for the races are available at the League of Women Voters Education Fund’s website.
